Water Babies Classes in Tees Valley & NY Moors

The Water Babies Journey

From gentle floating, kicking and splashing to wriggling, giggling and jumping in ...

Babies love swimming!
Babies have a real affinity with water, and because they’ve spent 9 months floating in the womb, being in warm water feels much more familiar to them than being on dry land. However, this early confidence usually diminishes with time, and can even turn to fear. That’s one of the main reasons why we believe in starting them young. But we never swim a baby against their wishes, and we always incorporate lots of bonding, fun and socialising, so you can be sure that a Water Baby is a happy baby.

Baby swimming with Water Babies is an exciting, enriching experience for both you and your little one. Not only does it teach vital life skills, but it also enhances the way babies and toddlers learn other skills, too. No one else reaches our high standards of professionalism, and no one else works harder to make sure you and your little one feel happy and safe. And we always incorporate lots of bonding, fun and socialising, so you can be sure that a Water Baby is a happy baby!

Classes across Tees Valley & North York Moors are run by Pamela Hargreaves, after a friend’s underwater photograph of her twin boys kick-started a series of events that would change her life forever. “When she told me the photograph was from Water Babies”, Pamela says, “I went straight home and looked for classes for my 6-week old daughter, Alice!”

Pamela and Alice started classes just a few weeks later and, in her own words, “was one of those mums who was a nervous wreck in my first lesson. Alice is now in Chapter 15, and I’m constantly astounded by what she can do, and at such a young age. That’s what I love about Water Babies – we don’t just take babies on a journey, but their mums and dads too. And as a teacher, I feel truly honoured to be guiding them on such a wonderful adventure!”

The wonderfully enthusiastic Vicky, Debs and Blossom are the friendly voices in the office, while a team of highly qualified teachers completes the Water Babies crew. They’d love to hear from you, so why not give them a call? Or check out the banter on the Water Babies Tees Valley & North Yorks Moors Facebook page!
